A Hard Right For Giuliani Education Team

Giuliani_516 The most interesting aspects of this story on the Giuliani education team (Champions of Choice) from Friday's New York Sun are first that it signals Giuliani's effort to move to the right on education -- much like he's done on immigration and other issues since becoming a candidate.  (Now he's for vouchers among other things, and at least one education guru has left his camp in response.)

At the same time, the piece shows how Giuliani is trying to counter claims that he didn't do much on education as mayor.  (It's not for lack of trying.  I remember from my brief days as an aide to NYC schools chancellor Ramon Cortines how hard Giuliani was criticizing the school system and pushing for direct control.  He was only slightly better behaved when Rudy Crew came in.)
